Examples include libraries of screen-handling functions (the curses and ncurses libraries) and database access routines (the dbm library). We’ll show you some libraries in later chapters. Standard system libraries are usually stored in /lib and /usr/lib. The C compiler (or more exactly, the linker) needs to be told which libraries to search, as by default it searches only the standard C library.
